Sennheiser Urbanite On-Ear Headphones Review

Whenever we receive a set of headphones to review, we have a set criteria that we compare them to: quality, performance and price. While there are other factors that come into play, these really are the main three concepts that we focus on. When we first got the Sennheiser Urbanite on-ear headphones, we knew that we could expect the audio quality to be at the higher end – just by the manufacturer alone. As we opened it up and starting listening, we were thrown aback. We encourage you to keep reading as we break down our thoughts on the Sennheiser Urbanite.

DESIGN & SPECIFICATIONS

Starting with the outside and working our way in, the packaging has a simple design. The front of the box simply has a side perspective of the Urbanite. While the sides and back are packed with writing explaining the specifications of these headphones.

Sennheiser maintains a certain level, a standard if you will, when it comes to headphone specifications. While we could show you pictures of each side of the box we feel that it is best identified in the chart below.

When you open up the packaging, you are greeted by a black foam insert that protects the collapsed headphones, as well as the 3.5mm audio cable and the safety guide. You will also find the manual as well as a silky-feeling carrying case.

The 3.5mm audio cable is 1.2 meters in length, with a slight rubber feeling to it. The cable is also flat to help prevent the annoying “tangles”. What is most interesting about this audio cable is the end that inserts in the headphones, this is where you start to see the quality show up in the design. The end features a locking mechanism, as if the male end of your 3.5mm cable is the key to unlocking access to your Urbanite.

We would like to point out that really the only purpose of this locking mechanism is to prevent the cable from being pulled out of the headphones. To us, this seems to be a double-edged sword. While this will stop your music from being suddenly paused, it may also increase pulls on the headphones and your music listening device.

Also included on the 3.5mm cable is a Smart Remote with Mic. This remote is designed with an Apple iPhone in mind, with easy ways to control your music, volume and voice control. Don’t worry though if you’re not a fan of Apple, you can still use these headphones with most other smartphone manufacturer’s as well.

Let’s take a closer look at the on-ear headphones themselves. Our sand coloured headphones feature a soft rubber on the interior of the headband, and a fabric-like design on the exterior.

The ear cups are velour-like and extremely soft, while having a little bit of resistance to them. By this we mean that they feel as though there is memory foam squished inside.

Attaching the ear cups to the soft rubber headband is, what appears to be, high-quality stainless steel hinges. This allows for the headset to be easily folded and compacted for travel.
